Homeowners and staff at McCarthy Stone’s Augustus House Retirement Living Plus development, on Station Parade in Virginia Water, opened their doors to local retirees for live jazz music and cocktails.

Guests who attended the special event enjoyed a fantastic afternoon sipping a variety of cocktails in the social lounge, while also enjoying live entertainment, provided by MPR Jazz.

Guests were able to take a closer look at Augustus House as the event provided the opportunity to take a tour of the show complex, meet the McCarthy Stone team, and chat with retirees who are already living at the development.

Kevin Sims, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy Stone South East, said: “Our cocktail afternoon was a great success. Everyone enjoyed learning more about the cocktails from The Great Mobile Bar Company, and MPR Jazz put on a fantastic performance for our homeowners and guests. 

“The event was a good chance for us to showcase the wide variety of activities we host here at Augustus House and to provide people with an insight into the lives homeowners enjoy at the development.” 

Comprising a selection of 59 one and two bedroom Retirement Living Plus apartments, exclusively designed for people aged 70 and over, Augustus House provides everything homeowners could want for a relaxing retirement.  

The shared lounge is perfect for socialising with new neighbours and a bistro serves freshly prepared meals daily for those who do not want to cook in their own apartments.  Flexible domestic and personalised care packages are also available for homeowners at Augustus House, which can be tailored to provide varying levels of support according to individual needs. 

A dedicated Estates Manager takes care of the smooth running of the development, with 24 hour, 365 days a year on-site staffing, providing peace-of-mind for homeowners and their families.

Offering excellent road and rail links, Virginia Water is an ideal retirement location.  Augustus House is within close proximity of Virginia Water Lake and provides retirees with easy access to London’s Victoria Station.

Prices at Augustus House currently start from £400,000 for a one bedroom apartment and from £527,000 for a two bedroom apartment. 

More than nine out of ten customers would recommend McCarthy Stone to a friend, ensuring it has received the full Five Star award for customer satisfaction from the Home Builders Federation for 14 years’ running.  McCarthy Stone is the only UK housebuilder of any size or type to achieve this accolade, which is every year the awards have been run.
